Can I Douche during My Period?

Answer

Vaginal douching can change the chemical balance inside the vagina, so it should be done rarely. If and when you douche, you should use a mild vinegar and water solution. You should not douche during your period, though. When your period has ended, you may want to use a mild douche to clean out any left over blood, and to make you feel clean and fresh smelling. Do not douche often, because it can also introduce bacteria into your vagina. This foreign bacteria can spread up into your uterus, and cause infection in your vagina, uterus, and fallopian tubes.
